NPSL Week 13 Southeast Review/Preview

NPSL Official Logo 2016

In the South Conference, this is where we think some of the most competitive soccer will be played all spring and summer…

Starting in the Southeast, it’s crowded and there’s a lot of offense on the table…

There are six teams separated by six points. Atlanta Silverbacks are on top with 9 points, then the gaggle breaks in. Inter Nashville, Knoxville, and Asheville City are at 8. New Orleans Jesters are at 7. Chattanooga FC are at 5. Birmingham Hammers are at 4, Memphis City have 3, FC Carolina United have 2 and the Georgia Revolution have 1 point.

Last week, Atlanta shut out Knoxville before the Force put 5 on FCCU. Esportesnet has the highlights…

Scruffy City Syndicate has the five-spot from Sansom. FCCU lost the sandwich game in their week, 3-2, to Asheville City.

Inter Nashville and Memphis City had a scoreless draw and the Jesters beat the Revs, 1-0.

This week, Silverbacks are at FCCU and Knoxville. Inter Nashville host Asheville and New Orleans. Memphis City hosts Birmingham before going to Asheville. The Revs host Chattanooga FC Saturday before CFC’s Thursday match in Birmingham.

In the Lonestar, it’s still Midland-Odessa and Vaqueros at 9 points. Houston Regals are next at 4. Tyler FC have 2, Dutch Lions 1, and the Shreveport Rafters are looking for their first points.

Last week, Midland-Odessa beat Vaqueros, 2-1…

And had a feature done on them by the folks over at Inside View

Tyler and Dutch Lions drew at 2 and the Lions have the highlights there…

This week, Midland-Odessa goes to Vaqueros and Tyler FC. Lions host Regals and Tyler hosts the Rafters.

The Heartland is still a big jumble with five teams within five points of each other. Little Rock Rangers are at 9 points with FC Wichita at 7 points, Tulsa Athletic at 6, Dallas City at 4, and Joplin’s Demize at 4 points. Ozark FC is still looking for their first positive result of the season.

Last week, Rangers beat Dallas City and drew Demize. Demize also beat Tulsa and Dallas City. FC Wichita also beat Ozark FC. This week, Ozark hosts Dallas City and Tulsa host Wichita.

Finally in the Sunshine, it’s still the two Miami franchises and everyone else. United leads Fusion by 3 points (12-9). Armada U-23 and Boca Raton FC are at 6. Beaches and Kraze United are at 3 points and Naples United have lost their first four matches.

Last week, Miami United beat Beaches 1-0. Sportsmesh tv has the match…
